CBOE web site offers quite many and good tools for futures traders. Apart from quotes, news and education resources, there are trading simulators which could be used unlimited time with a free registration on the web site. As a novice futures trader, I've been demo-testing some of the futures brokers platforms; however they give only 14-day trial which is not enough and need to register again with a new email, while losing your previous history and so on. That is why, for educational purposes CBOE.com simulation trading tools are quite good. I've been using those resources for a couple of years while learning stock trading, options on stocks and now grain futures trading.

Currently, I am using a tool called Virtual Trade. Although, it is very simplified and it will not show in full depth especially for a day trader every aspect of day trading; it is good for a start understanding futures trading basics and specifications. It has no charting; however I am using other charting websites while placing/closing orders.  On the other hand, it is quite good for following and keeping a track of your trades.
